Some Background: I am 22 and not living with my family anymore. My mom died when I was 11 and my father maried a new woman. She brought 3 Children into the mariage, of what the youngest appears to be my step-sister, she is 15. When I visited them last week I went into the room of my sister and found a suicide letter on her desk, with the standard sentences like: "It doesn't make any sense anymore" and the like. About my sister: She kind of is into emo stuff, which I think is more a cry for attention, just like the sucide note ( no offense if anyone emo reads this, just respect my opinion and I won't judge your lifestyle ). My question is: I don't think she would put a serious suicide note on her desk and then walk away with everyone to see it, if she is really thinking about killing herself she would be more subtile. I want to know from people who REALLY know what they are talking about: If she gets more wrapped up in the whole thing, what are the signs I should look out for, how can I talk to her about it and in which way can I help. IMPORTANT: Don't try to tell me what to do if you have no clue yourself.
